Carranballac College Athletics Carnivals


During term 2 we have our three annual Carranballac College Athletics Carnivals scheduled:


  • Friday 19th May:                    Year 7-9 Athletics Carnival
  • Thursday 25th May:                Year 3-6 Jamieson Way Athletics Carnival
  • Friday 26trh May:                   Year 3-6 Boardwalk Athletics Carnival


The focus of these carnivals is to not only select our College Athletics teams (based upon the results), but for the students to have a fun filled time participating with their peers in a friendly competitive atmosphere. The students will not only be participating in their relevant age groups, but their school HOUSE teams, so we want to see lots of colour with them dressing up in their team colours. Coloured hairspray and face paint is permitted, however please ensure all applications are applied at home. Other good ideas include coloured hair ties, socks, nail polish etc.


As you can imagined, organising all the events successfully requires lots of management. If you are able to assist at any of the above carnivals as a parent helper (WWCC required), then please contact Carolyn Huell (PE/Sport Teacher at Boardwalk – 9395 3533) as we would certainly appreciate your help in any way!
